I just think your tone and remarks are a little excessive.
You're probably an o.k. guy, but a little wound-up about
a speculative topic.
Take care.

You're right Slacker. He's an asshole. He's the kind who attacks people out of the blue and then gets all arrogant when people call him on it. And, did you know he's MAKING AN ALBUM? :mrgreen: The guy's a dick from the get-go.

I'm more interested in Zappa than your little flame war.


Whatever...I join the board, make a few posts and within a few minutes I've found a net kook.

RC, when you attack people for making simple, reasonable posts, this is what happens.

It really does not matter if Gibson make a FZ guitar, because any Gibson that Zappa owned progressively lost its identity because the great man was more interested in making something appropiate for his moment, the 'when it is' that he identified.

If you want a Signature Frank Zappa Guitar then get enough information and have one made by a Luthier for you like a Savile Row suit.

It will be guaranteed to be cheaper than $6500

I dont see zft getting their act together long enough to make a deal like that go down.

It'll be standard cease and disist order... No use of frank's name... I'm surprised they didnt copyright that name. I tried to name my newborn frank, but I got a cease and disist order from gail and zft.


I'm gonna get one for writing this trash.

I'm sorry I strayed off topic with that last one, I'll aplolgize a little here(diggs for the brown lipstick). I mean no disrespect to zft or gail or Dweezil(who I respect immensely), I just have been waiting for YEARS for the release of the swiss/fire beat the boots release, and the zft(and frank himself) sat on all that material forever and did nothing with it. we still wouldnt have it if it werent for the boots. Let me tell you, the live thing is where its at, and that was my favorite 'boot' long before I knew what the show was and the history behind it. Some of my favorite recordings are zappa shows that are 'boots' but not released.... the last two years, the family could make gobs of money selling the shows (multiple) that I went to and loved. I would buy every one, but nobody is doing anything like that.

On to the Gibson. I would love to see a Zappa sg, but I dont think (If the folklore I've heard is true) that zappas sg wasnt gibson, but hand made by a luthier. If thats true, but gibson still kept to the original dimensions, I would buy one when the prices went down a bit/found one used. A great guitar would be worth $3000. I just dont know if I would pay $3000 for an sg, no matter who's name is on it.

Honestly? Fuck the gibson, and service Franks fans in the best way you can. With music. Let me buy more of it. A lot more of it. I want full shows... I want to support you with $9-10 per show mp3s or $12-13 per show flacs. I think they should be available within a few weeks of the shows, and start opening up Franks old catalog for purchase. One show or two shows per week. You may lose a FEW dollars on pirating and mp3 trading in p2ps, but look the bands who dont charge anything for the audience recordings, but still make a killing on the studio albums, and the sbd master releases. You would do 2 very important things. Make your fans happy, and expand your fanbase by a billion people. Lots of happy fans buy lots and lots of stuff.

You must of dreamt that price
It looks like the Gibson FZ SG is going too finally happen,Check it out the first three list guitars are out and a UK price tag is near too what is said there.Some seem late though they got the Peter Townsend SG done and the price is near.

A friend (at least I think he's still a friend) told me that Gibson doesn't make them as well as they used to.

Cleon, I guess you play guitar or something? Why must you come on so heavy? Is it to make up for the fact that you can't play worth a shit?

Now they just need to make a replica of Zappa's brain so all these wannabe's can actually do something with their guitars.
